How to Save Yourself From Dreaded Rough Hands
You're bound to have some dryness now and again. Hand creams aren't superfluous—they're actually made so that your dry fingers don't crack and bleed. Keep one in the bathroom, one at the office, and one in your bag. Here's what to get.
1| Eucerin Advanced Repair
Hot water and skin-stripping soap will dry you out every time you wash your hands. Keep this on hand and use after every wash.
2| Aquaphor Healing Ointment
Aquaphor's ointment does not mess around. Save this one for nighttime use.
3| Jergens Shea Butter
Shea butter not only smells great, but it's also great at locking in moisture.
4| Burt's Bees Hand Cream
Burt's Bees uses Baobab oil, which is great for extra-dry skin. Keep this in your bag and use it liberally.
5| Weleda Skin Food
Apply throughout the day as your hands start to feel tight.
6| L'Occitane Hand Cream
L'Occitane makes silk-like lotions, and its hand cream is no different. You only need a little to cover some major surface area.
7| Kiehl's Ultimate Strength Hand Salve
Kiehl's is a standby in men's grooming products. This hand salve dries quickly, so your hands won't feel greasy during the day.
8| Jack Black Hand Healer
Use Jack Black's formula right after a shower to ensure smooth skin.
9| Lush Cuticle Butter
If your fingers and cuticles tend to get especially dry, it's worth snagging a formula made for just that.
10| Fresh Seaberry Hand Cream
Fresh's seaberry cream is intense; use it before heading out.
11| Origins Rejuvenating Hand Treatment
If your hands have sun damage or an uneven tone, Origins's hand treatment smoothes them both out.

For hands that need help all day, Aesop's hand balm is quick drying and super hydrating.
